Hi, I'm Claire

I’m a 1st year missionary from Los Angeles, CA.

What brought you to Christ in the City?

I had the blessing of learning the unfailing and unboundless love the Lord has for me in college, as well as the ways the world is aching and how people do not know God’s love for them. I started desiring to serve in a life-changing way through full-time mission during the summer last year, and found so many of my desires met in meeting and serving with the current missionaries this past February. The people at and around Christ in the City challenge me to love others solely by walking with them in their journey, without automatically trying to help out or fix things. I desire to learn how to love the Lord and other people more fully and completely by learning to lean not on my abilities, but instead on love, and through that foster sincerity, openness and joy.

What are you looking forward to?

I am looking forward to seeing Jesus in each person that I meet and learning how to love them completely and selflessly. I also am beyond excited to live in intentional community with the other missionaries and dive deeper into faith and learn to embrace the suffering and joys of life together.

A bit about me

I am a recent graduate from the University of California, Berkeley where I studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I am constantly listening to music, of any genre, and have a habit of listening to one song I like over and over again until I get tired of it. I also enjoy baking, crafting and playing with my Maltipoo dog, Poe!
